How to VAT register via a tax representation in Belgium ?

In order to register for Belgian VAT, non-established foreign companies must first provide proof of activity in Belgium, requiring identification. Before the BCAE will issue a Belgian VAT identification number, the taxable person must provide irrefutable proof that he will carry out operations for which an identification number is required in the near future. Without proof of activity, a foreign taxable person who does not have a permanent establishment in Belgium cannot be assigned a VAT number.

Proof can be provided, for example, by means of a contract or order form, a warehouse rental contract in the case of a distribution center, an import document, a transport document, an invoice, proof of merger or takeover.

Here is the list of documents to be provided when submitting the registration file :

The VAT registration in Belgium via a tax representative requires the deposit of a cash deposit on behalf of the FPS Finance. This must be paid via the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC). The guarantee document must be submitted via the e-DEPO application.
